Information & Guidelines
Community Bank Buninyong is excited to re-launch our Community Gold program. It’s been a long-time favourite and we couldn’t think of a better time to reintroduce it.
Everyone’s had an extremely challenging year with another 12 months of lockdowns, adjusted opening hours and business practices. We know this is needed more than ever right now.
The Community Gold Program is all about supporting the sustainability of local business and service providers. Its purpose is to increase local spending and what more important time than now?
How does the
We distribute Community Gold cards in $10 and $20 denominations through not-for-profit local clubs and organisations as part of our Community Investment Program.
These cards are distributed by the organisations amongst their members for specific purposes.
Businesses bank the redeemed Community Gold cards as cash.
The cards can be redeemed at participating businesses as an accepted form of payment. The terms and conditions of use are on the card.
Any local retailer or service provider can apply to be a Community Gold participant.
You must be operating a registered business (holding an ABN) operating within our local Buninyong area.
You do need to hold (or open) a deposit account with Community Bank Buninyong. This is purely for administration purposes and for Community Gold cards to be banked as cash.
If at some stage you decide the program is no longer for you, let us know and we will remove you from the participant list.
If your business comes into disrepute (at our discretion) you will be removed from the program immediately.

$10,000 in GOLD GRANTS
To help relaunch our Community Gold Program, the Community Investment Program has committed $10,000 to be distributed in Community Gold. That’s $10,000 which will be allocated in up to $500 amounts to community clubs and organisations by the end of the year.
Community Gold cards come in $10 and $20 denominations and can be redeemed at participating local businesses. This pile of gold will need to be redeemed by 28 February 2022.
If your not-for-profit community club, group or organisation is prepared to act quickly and spread a little cheer for a 1 December kickoff, then apply today.
Expressions of interest must be received no later than Friday 12 November 2021. (Selection criteria applies. Successful recipients will be notified mid-November). Apply above.
